To develop consistent organizations, the previously defined individual interpretations must be linked together. In the subsurface, these links occur as geological contacts. These contacts are mainly surface contacts (between two units), linear contacts (between two boundaries), and can be also nodal contacts (between linear contacts) (Figure Organization Interpretations gathers the individual representations and the contact interpretations, but a preliminary step is required to define these contacts.

Contact interpretations exist only in the context of an organization interpretation. This means that each contact interpretation has a unique index in the context of only one organization interpretation but not in "the universe" (no UUID). Therefore, contact interpretations cannot be shared by organization interpretations.
